The old Greeks

When my old man landed in Myrtle Beach in '46, 8 outta 10 sitdown joints were owned or operated by Greeks...Broadway Restaurant, Capri, Roxy, Mayflower, Kozy Korner, Ocean Front Tavern and Seven Seas Grill. Most all those Greeks worked 18-hour days and went down with the ship wearin their slip-proof clogs and bowties.

Back in the day when packards ruled the road and store mannequins didn't have nipples, it was a law Greeks had to work in restaurants.
